Agnihotra on Bali

Robert Bagnall

Bali is a place where much of the ancient ways are still honored and practiced, yet much has also been forgotten, and the westernization of the culture seems to be gaining momentum among the youth here. As Smart Phones and the internet are having a major impact on the culture, the ancient knowledge of the Vedas has also returned and today we are blissfully witnessing a resurgence of interest in Agnihotra by locals and foreign visitors who come to Bali to partake of the beauty and reconnect with nature.

Thanks to the growing body of evidence that Agnihotra and Homa Therapy offer an effective way to mitigate the effects of pollution and harmful radiation, many are taking a closer look and beginning to see past their cultural prejudices to discover their innate affinity for this science based ancient knowledge that we all enjoy and benefit from as we share it throughout our world.

Today, as a result of the many seeds that have been sown, many are coming to embrace the practice of daily Agnihotra and, in particular, the people associated with the NewEarth Nation here on Bali and elsewhere around the world. The NewEarth Nation is actively sharing this knowledge with their community members through Dr. Nancy Ash, Global Director of the NewEarth Nation, recently emphasized the importance of Agnihotra in a letter she sent to me describing it as seminal to the work of the NewEarth Nation community and, as such, it is now being implemented here on Bali as a part of our organic farming practices. It is also performed daily here at the NewEarth Haven and ClearCafe. Both are highly frequented locations which are very public venues where many are being introduced to Agnihotra for the first time.

The Homa Organic Farm we are creating here on Bali will supply food for the Akasha Restaurant. Other goals and objectives include making available to interested local farmers an example of alternatives to the chemical farming methods currently employed here on the majority of farms. We plan to illustrate and feature the benefits and improved profitability of Homa Organic Farming methods.
